A Moment to Be Still ~

BE STILL BY BRANDI WOOD FREE PHOTO #18120

Lord, I need a quiet moment,
to be alone with You
a time not interrupted
by the things that I must do.

A time of surrender,
to Your perfect will
a time with You only
a moment to be still.

A time to reflect,
on Your amazing grace
a time to hold You close
a minute to embrace.

A time to recognize,
You are always here
a time to know Your touch
a second to feel You near.

A time to pay attention,
to let Your Spirit lead
a time to feel Your peace
an instant is all I need.

Lord, give me just a second,
maybe even two . . .
I need this very moment
alone with only You!

call ye upon him while he is near:”

Absolute Surrender ~

Live by Grace used with permission IBible Verses

Absolute surrender,
Lord, I give my life to You
in absolute surrender
do what You must do.

Absolute surrender,
my mind to You I yield
in absolute surrender
so I may be Spirit filled.

Absolute surrender,
my heart is Yours to mold
in absolute surrender,
my thoughts for You to hold.

Absolute surrender,
my soul is in Your hand
in absolute surrender
on You I’ll firmly stand.

Absolute surrender,
my body to You I give
in absolute surrender
to Your will, I will live.

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 2:20
King James Version

“I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live; yet not I,
but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live
in the flesh

I live by the faith
of the Son of God,

who loved me,
and gave himself for me.

Surrender Your Heart ~

Surrender Your Heart ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

That searching in your heart,
the hunger that you feel
can only be satisfied . . .
when you know God’s will.

A life that is surrendered,
that meets His demands
will find divine direction
when left in His hands.

Maybe your life you’ve made,
a complete and utter mess of
but don’t limit what God can do
with His unconditional love.

When Jesus has your heart,
His good pleasure works in you
and the Holy Spirit’s power
will turn you into something new.

That hunger in your heart,
the thirst that you feel
only Jesus can satisfy . . .
only God’s mercy can fill!

Matthew 5:6
King James Version 

“Blessed are they which do hunger
and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.”

Slow Me Down, Lord ~

Slow Me Down Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Slow me down Lord,
help me to take the time
to see You’re more important
than this life of mine.

Slow me down Lord,
sometimes I move too fast
I get so distracted to even notice
that it was You, I have passed.

Slow me down Lord,
help me to stay close to You
let me see You’re more worthy
than anything I have to do.

Slow me down Lord,
it seems I’m always on the run
and so often Your voice
I just put off and shun.

Slow me down Lord,
help me to put You first . . .
help me to see if I don’t my soul
will always hunger and thirst!

My Strength ~

Be Strong Trust God by Megan Watson fre photo #14670

Lord, my strength isn’t in my bones,
for they are too weak and frail
my strength is in the knowledge
Your Spirit in me will never fail.

My strength does not come,
from anything that I can do
for, I have very little power
if it does not come from You.

My strength cannot be found,
by going to the gym or spa
my strength is when I exercise
to You, my holy awe.

My strength is thin and feeble,
and sometimes I cannot stand
but, when I draw close to You
I feel the power of Your hand.

Lord, my strength doesn’t measure up,
when compared to Your own . . .
my burdens would be too heavy
if I had to carry them alone!

King James Version

” I can do all this through him who gives me
strength.”

Take Me Deeper Lord ~

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
no more just skimming the surface
no more being shallow or superficial
no more just giving You lip service.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
take me to the center of Your life
no more lack of spiritual power
take me out of my self-imposed strife.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
take me to where You’re in control
no more self-centered desires
take me to where I surrender to You all.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
take me to the depth of Your heart
no more not trusting or doubting
take away from me what keeps us apart.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
take me to where we are immersed
no more wandering or roaming around
take me to where I’ll put You first.

Take me deeper Lord, take me deep,
deeper more, deeper yet, deeper still
take me all the way down into You
until I rise knowing Your perfect will!

Be Still ~

Be Still ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be still, my soul, be at peace,
let not thy worries overcome
be still, and know He is your God
and will . . . your heart-strings . . . strum.

Be still, my heart and let go,
let surrender be thy sweet release
be still, and know God’s saving power
to eternity, can never fail or cease.

Be still, my mind and surrender all,
let thy weakness take you to your knees
be still, and know of God’s sufficiency
where His glory surpasses all thy needs.

Be still, my spirit admit thy defeat,
let thyself dwell on things from above
be still, and know He is in control
and be strengthened by and in His love.

Be still, my soul be at peace,
let Him complete in thee His perfect will
be still, and know He is your God
and will . . . your heart-strings . . . still.

King James Version

“Be still,and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”

Total Surrender ~

Total Surrender by Brandon Halliburton free photo # 11777

Total surrender,
God wants it all
everything you have
nothing’s too small.

You must give Him,
all of your heart
He wants it in whole
not just a small part.

Total surrender,
God wants to see
how much you want
to with Him ~ be.

You need to submit,
to His perfect will
you must be willing
to wait and be still.

Total surrender,
God wants to know
how much you want
in Him to ~ grow.

You have to let go,
of selfish desires
you must be ready
for all He requires.

Total surrender,
God wants all of you
but you have to want . . .
all of Him too!

Romans 12:1
King James Version

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by
the mercies of God, that ye present
your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,
acceptable unto God, which is your
reasonable service.”

Lord, Take My Hand ~

Lord, Take My Hand ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus, I admit defeat,
I relinquish all to You
take my hand Lord Jesus
do what only You can do.

A life without victory,
beaten down by all the loss
take my hand Lord Jesus
and lead me to Your Cross.

A heart that’s been broken,
beset by grief and pain
take my hand Lord Jesus
and lead me home again.

Restore to me my first love,
remove the stones You see
take my hand Lord Jesus
and guide me back to Thee.

Jesus, I do surrender,
my life is Yours to pursue
take my hand Lord Jesus
and bring me closer to You.

I commit my spirit:

thou hast redeemed me,
